7 point star

7 point star

Hello and welcome to my first post and a look at my first try at a 7 point star block. I am quite new to foundation paper piecing so I am being quite brave in showing you this early attempt. I’m fairly happy with the results but am really surprised at how long it took me to sew together. I would hope that I will get faster with a little practice but at this point I can’t imagine doing an entire quilt this way ! If you’d like to give it a try – here is where I printed the free template from:


I am linking up with Leanne’s Scraptastic Tuesday because this project was all scraps… I don’t know why I have so much christmas fabric – I just do !

      Thanks for the encouragement. I do enjoy the foundation piecing. It’s pretty cool to do something upside down and backwards and have it turn out !
